Maybe I was expecting more from PhoneGap Desktop, but does it actually do anything more then PhoneGap CLI's serve command?
I was hoping for a GUI of the CLI functions, like build and emulate. Any plans for such a beastie?
Currently the desktop app only has the serve functionality. We are working on bringing feature parity with the CLI but commands like "build" come with many challenges (Mac vs PC, Xcode, Android dev tools, signing certificates, etc...).
The desktop app's main intentions are for a quick intro into the PhoneGap tooling and how to develop with it. For most of the heavy lifting you will need to use the CLI.
And while you're at it, how about a GUI tool for building config.xml? Maybe a real Adobe tool that generates all the proper icons from a single file? You guys own Photoshop, right?
